A clear, engaging look at the most critical issues of diversity in the 21st century, focusing on the interactions and intersections between culture, the individual, and institutions
Understanding Human Differences employs a stimulating inquiry approach to engage students in discussing and debating the most critical issues of diversity in America. Grounded in research from the behavioral and social sciences — including education, psychology, sociology, history, biology, anthropology, women’s studies, and ethnic studies — this book uses a question-and-answer format to bring the topics and issues to life. The conceptual framework for the book examines issues from cultural, individual, and institutional perspectives. The last section of the book focuses on changes already achieved or that need to be implemented in schools and other areas of society to create a more just society.
The 6th Edition is thoroughly updated to keep readers aware of new factors impacting ongoing issues of diversity as well as emerging new issues. New content and coverage includes: updated information on the consequences of racial profiling (Ch. 8); new content on current immigration issues including the need for K-12 schools to prepare immigrant youth for college, the increased fears of deportation, and immigrant contributions to the urban economy (Ch. 4); and updated and expanded information on LGBT civil rights (Ch. 11.)
